124.) D. The writ of habeas corpus prevents persons from being arrested without warrants of arrest. The Constitution specifies the conditions wherein the writ shall be suspended to prevent warrantless arrests, which were prevalent during the Marcos dictatorship (which was overthrown by the 1st People Power Revolution). The Constitution clearly states that "the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended except in cases of invasion or rebellion." 125. D. Article VI, Section 1 states, "The legislative power shall be vested in the Congress of the Philippines which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives...". The Upper House of Congress is the Senate while the Lower House is the House of Representatives. Representatives are elected by the constituents in their respective legislative districts, while Senators are elected at the national level.

126.) A. Article VI, Section 16.3 states, "Each House may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of twothirds of all its Members, suspend or expel a Member." So, if the Senate wants to expel a member, 16 of the 24 Senators must agree to expel that Senator.

127.) D. According to Article VI, Section 27.1, "The President shall communicate his veto of any bill to the House where it originated within thirty days after the date of receipt thereof, otherwise, it shall become a law as if he had signed it." A vetoed bill may still become a law if two-thirds of the members of the house where it originated votes to make it a law.
